Restoring Salmon Creek Watershed

Our StreamTeam program proactively addresses the problems facing the Salmon Creek watershed. Since the voluntary program began in 1992, more than 850,000 trees have been planted to restore approximately 120 acres of land along 12 miles of stream length. We’ve also installed 10 miles of livestock exclusion fencing and two miles of bank stabilization, and removed tons of garbage—literally!—with the help of dedicated people like you.
